The Ambassador of the United Kingdom to the United Arab Emirates is the United Kingdom's foremost diplomatic representative in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and head of the UK's diplomatic mission in the UAE. The official title is Her Britannic Majesty's Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates.

Before the UAE was granted independence from the United Kingdom in 1971, each of the Trucial States was home to its own political deputation from the United Kingdom, with its own Political Officer or Political Agent heading the deputation. Of these deputations and political representatives, the oldest and most important was to the Emir of Abu Dhabi, who was based in the city of Abu Dhabi, now the capital city of the UAE and the site of the modern British embassy.

The UK also maintains an embassy in Dubai, subordinate to the Abu Dhabi embassy, headed by a Consul General.
